Baauer and Ryan Hemsworth Hit New Zealand For Three Shows

Baauer and Ryan Hemsworth Hit New Zealand For Three Shows
 
NYC club-killer and soundcloud poster-boy BAAUER -- responsible for the world-smash internet sensation and #1 Billboard Hot 100 track Harlem Shake -- is set to hit New Zealand for three shows co-headlining with awesomely irreverent, genre-bending Canadian DJ/producer RYAN HEMSWORTH.

BAAUER

Harlem Shake saw BAAUER, otherwise known as Harry Baauer Rodrigues, became an international club phenomenon overnight. BAAUER is no one hit wonder -- along with a high-streaming collaboration with Grammy Award Winning hip-hop super-producer Just Blaze, BAAUER has been busy with superlative remix work for some worldwide dance-floor heavyweights including Jay-Z, Disclosure, The Prodigy and Aluna George.

Off the back of headline shows across the US, Europe and Australia, BAAUER is bringing his high-octane fusion of sub-bass and future crunk soundscapes to New Zealand audiences for the first time.

Aligned with Glasgow’s pioneering LuckyMe label (Hudson Mohawke), BAAUER is surely a young talent on the brink of great things; melding dance-floor traditions with hip-hop tendencies in a threateningly authentic style equally at home in a heavy club as in a huge stadium.

RYAN HEMSWORTH

Canadian DJ and producer RYAN HEMSWORTH is no stranger to celebrity -- having made his name remixing and producing for big names in alt dance and hip hop -- Kanye West, Frank Ocean, A$AP Rocky, Grimes, Shady Blaze…

Renowned for his unique remix treatments blurring the lines between hip-hop, indie rock and pop, Hemsworth is touring in the successful path carved out by the impression of his solo production LP Guilt Trips in 2013. Prepare to party.

This is just the beginning -- catch these boys before they blow up.
 
Tickets on sale now for 25.00 + booking fee from www.dashtickets.co.nz.

Werewolf: Music Criticism As A Dating Metaphor

Music criticism can be just another form of consumer advic... Yet ever since pop music criticism first entered the media mainstream it has played a wider role, too. Rather than a decree with a numerical score attached, this kind of criticism functions more like travel notes. A conversation, even a form of seduction. More>>

Comedy Festival Review: VOTE BATT

The political campaigning in the US over the last eight months or so has provided a stark insight into how far political candidates are willing to go.
